First off this is impressive and truly amazing.

Second I was hoping to offer my services. I noticed a lot of people where asking you for a written tutorial even after all this time. As English is not your first language you are having trouble with this. Based off your pictures and replies I have a basic understanding of what you did. I could write the tutorial and ask questions for clarification on what I do not understand.

Third I was wondering if you remembered the approximate dimensions for the diameter of the wooden balls and staff.

I was wondering... where did you get the dowels that size? I can only seem to find small ones...

Thanks.

I cut them usually by myself. In many hardware stores you can get some wooden rod with grooves... so I take this and cut them :)

It lights up?! Holy figs, it LIGHTS UP!! That's incredible. Most cosplayers wouldn't take it to that level, but you accomplished it. Amazing work on this. :)

Hello NettyCosplay , i was wondering, what have you used for assemble the wood parts of the rod itself, it look likes little pieces of wood but i'm not sure, and what have you used for the support of the gold balls on the side of the heart shape ? Thank's ^^

Yes, these are little wood dowel pins. But the staff can be seperate into 3 parts, so at this point I used special screws (engl. hanger bolt)
The bigger golden balls were some plastic balls I found in my "DIY box" XD (I collect many things because I love to make this or that by myself) and glued them at the side. I don't know anymore where they are from, but I coverd them with some gold foil... (the smaller balls in the middle are 2 golden pearls) The "sidearms" are made like the Heart from PU and fiberglas + model clay for the fitting

I managed to see where and what you did in almost each one of the pics. just a question. Where (In these pictures) can you see the fiberglass cause I could not identify where you used it ?

The Garnet Orb (heart) is covered with fiberglas.
The pic 14 shows the glasfiber and how I put it on, and pic 15 is with resin, the finished fiberglas. I sand it a bit, and put another layer of resin (pic 16/17,the red colored resin under the primer.. I don't have a pic of the 2nd layer.. sorry).
When you see my "WIP Sailor Galaxy Sword" there you can see some more steps with fiberglas..

I made the props by myself and atm I'm not going to sell something like that.

oh sorry, i meant do you know a store that sells the materials you've used- the plexiglass/ polyurethane/ resin etc. i'm looking for a europe-based store or website that sells the raw supplies, such as the fiber ribbons you used and the resin

The rod is made of wood and is fastened with screws. So you have 3 parts (easier to transport)

Your staff looks like it disassembles i that makes sense. What are the skinny small sticks you used to attach the pieces together?

Thanks.

May I ask, what did you use for -I guess- spraying? It was the first time I saw that 'black-out' technique to make it look like real metal.

:iconnettycosplay:
NettyCosplay Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2013  Student Artisan Crafter
I used airbrush paint called "Alclad Chrome"
For this paint you need a black high gloss "base"

I love how you made the time staff out of all of the replicas it's the only that looks the most acurate. I plan to cosplay as sailor pluto for momo-con next year in atlanta and i was wondering if you can tell me all the materials you used in making the staff  I was appreciate it so much

All materials I used, I write in the descripition (of the wip and the finished prop)
Many other asked questions of how I made this or that, and I tried to answer them in the comments.
Perhaps you will find your answers there :) and if not, just tell me your questions - I hope I can answer (it's so long ago I made this staff XD)

Ok thanks I've looked through the comments and I saw that you used resin what exactly did you use resin for in making the staff?

NettyCosplay Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2013  Student Artisan Crafter
I used epoxy resin+glassfibre (fibreglass) for the heart.

Ok i have one final question its a two part question the first part is what did you use to make the key blades on the staff and after the hearts were cast in resin and the fiberglass what did you use to make for the sides of the heart? and the second part is what did you use to make the upper part of the staff where the garnet orb sits
